“Modern loneliness, we’re never alone but always depressed”
It seems we are never alone with a smartphone as we can contact our friends and receive information from the world anytime and anywhere. But why do we still feel empty at times despite we are bound up with the outer world? American singer, Lauv released the song Modern Loneliness to talk about this “not alone loneliness”. With the advancement of technology, while using different devices to connect with the outer world desperately, we easily forget getting along with our inner selves. Being flooded with depressing news and vast information online, we have no room settling down and getting in touch with our thoughts and emotions. Although it is important to concern our friends and social issues, taking good care of our inner selves helps us to go further. At the end of each day, let’s try setting a “me time” for ourself and stay away from electronic devices. We can write a journal getting in touch with our thoughts and emotions. In these exclusive moments, we can truly communicate with our inner selves.
